Oh I see. Dal breeding sounds like a challenge, and I think that it could be fun sometime in the future. :)

Nice discussion - great info.

The dal you're discussing is orange with spotted fins - usually a darker shade of red. Orange is hard to maintain as it is and to get the spots (I think) you'd need certain marbling...... I once saw a (what I call) a true dalmation. It was a white dragon with black spots on most of the body (not the head) and fins. Though I haven't seen such orange dal, but I've seen orange dragon dals (usual spots on fins)

I have never worked with dal's and don't know exactly know how they work. But they are possible with dragons. Perhaps if you replace the red with a red dragon then inbreed to parent .... not really sure.

Please share when you breed them.

i think the orange dals, were the first dals. i've seen the white with black/blue spots, and think it's lovely in a dragon scale.

My orange dal passed away this morning, my walmarts current breeder/provider apparently isnt very good as the last 6 bettas (4 of which have assed away) I got from there have been extremelly ill, and I got them the day of or after they came in through shipment, every betta from te last 3 shiments have been extremelly ill, SBD, finrot,or VERY underweight, I have a meeting with the store manager tomorrow and Im going to try to get the breeders contac info

I do still want to find a dal to try breeding though, keeping my eyes out for another

Aw, I'm so sorry! Hopefully you'll find a nice Dal soon! I'm very glad that my Walmart doesn't sell bettas.

I actually got my orange dalmation at Wal-Mart. That's where I usually see them. I think I may have seen one or so at Petco or Petsmart, but my local Wal-Mart has actually had a few of them. I actually went in once looking for a dalmation one and the last male they had in stock was a veiltail dalmation. How lucky is that? He's pale orange with dark red spots on his fins. I'll try to get a pic of him if I can. To me, he's both pretty and ugly. I love the spots, but form some reason they remind me of chicken pox. Therefore, he is named Pox. :P

I remember many months ago someone posted a picture of one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL bettas I've seen ever. He was a simple veiltail, but he was a light purple lavendar like color with gorgeous dark purple spots. That person got so lucky to find such a beauty! I know people don't like to breed veiltails but that one would be worth it IMO. I'd definitely take one of those babies if they looked like their daddy.
